Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John D. MacDonald was an American novelist and short-story writer. His works include the Travis McGee series and the novel The Executioners, which was adapted into the film Cape Fear. In 1962 MacDonald was named a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America; in 1980, he won a National Book Award. In print he delighted in smashing the bad guys, deflating the pompous, and exposing the venal. In life, he was a truly empathetic man; his friends, family, and colleagues found him to be loyal, generous, and practical. In business, he was fastidiously ethical. About being a writer, he once expressed with gleeful astonishment, “They pay me to do this! They don’t realize, I would pay them.” He spent the later part of his life in Florida with his wife and son. He died in 1986.

Synopsis:

An insane criminal threatens to destroy a family, and the police are powerless to protect them.

For fourteen years convicted rapist Max Cady nursed his hatred for Sam Bowden into an insane passion for revenge. He lived only for the day he would be free — free to track down and destroy the man who had put him behind bars.

Murder was merciful compared to what Cady had in mind — and what Cady had in mind was Bowden's innocent and lovely teenaged daughter . . . .

"A powerful and frightening story." — The New York Times
